Dick and Jane and Vampires (Dick and Jane)by Laura Marchesani and Tommy Hunt
Synopses & Reviews
When innocent Dick and Jane meet a creepy, cape-wearing vampire, the unexpected happens: he becomes their friend!
Dick and Jane and Vampires borrows from the classic stories and art we all know and love, but adds an of-the-moment twist: a vampire, illustrated in the classic Dick and Jane style.
"Joining the many supernatural/classic publishing mashups of the moment, this gifty gem incorporates illustrations from the original Dick and Jane series--with the addition of a Lugosi-style vampire. The children are at first fearful of the infiltrator: 'Look, Jane, Look. There is Father. Hello, Father. Oh, oh, oh. That is not our father. Run, Jane! Run, Dick!' In a later section, however, the vampire becomes a playmate, jumping rope and playing house: 'Vampire is my baby. Vampire is my funny little baby.' Though the conceit wears a little thin, the inspired concept and skillful execution should give it coffee-table staying power. Ages 5 — up. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Hunt's art captures the style of the original series illustrations dead-on (or is that undead-on?), while Marchesani's sentences, stripped to basic subject/predicate, are sometimes a little unexpectedly chilling..." The Los Angeles Times
